The Newborn Photography & Baby Photography Specialists
Hi, thanks for visiting, we would love to do a photo shoot with your new baby!
So, why should you choose us to photograph your new wee baby?…
We specialise in newborn photography & baby photography.
We only photograph babies they are our absolute favourite models and our clients come from all over Scotland for us to photograph their babies for them in our custom built baby studio!
Also, we run our business different to most studios, not only is our studio custom built for newborn and very young babies, with your babies safety comfort and well-being our main priorities at all times…
We don’t insist you book in as soon as you find out you are pregnant!
If your baby is already here, or you are due soon, that’s not a problem we always have standby appointments available for parents who don’t want to or didn’t think to book in advance!
Not only that, with Debbies training, experience and amazing skills with babies we are able get gorgeous photos of new babies up to six weeks old.
So although 5-10 days is the best time if you prefer the tiny curled up sleepy photos, and this is the stage we photograph most of our babies at, we won’t turn you away if your baby is not under 14 days old!
Some of our clients want to book in early in their pregnancy and in that situation we book you in, just as soon as you are happy to do so, for a provisional date around 5 – 10 days after your due date and then we move the session to one of our standby appointments if the wee one arrives early or late.
We always keep a selection of standby appointments available every week to accommodate this.
To make sure we are able to give our clients 100% of our abilities, we only photograph 2 babies a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon so although we very rarely go over 2 hours for a photo shoot we have more time if needed, we will never rush you!
One of Scotlands most experienced photography studios…
As one of Scotland’s most experienced photography studios, we have more than 25 years experience, and with our resident “Baby whisperer” Debbie we know more than most about photographing babies.
It’s all about safety first…
Your babies safety and comfort are our main concern.
Debbie has many years experience of working with and caring for very young babies and this is a priceless, unique asset to our studio.
All of our clients comment on how amazing she is with their babies.
We are very much baby led in our approach and we will NEVER put your baby in a pose, prop or situation that will compromise their safety or wellbeing.
This should be your main consideration when choosing a studio for your baby, too many well meaning amateurs with cameras who have no prior training in, or experience of, handling babies are set up as baby photographers.
“Having children of your own DOES NOT qualify you to safely handle other peoples babies”
What is the best age for my babies photo shoot?…
A question we get asked all the time is “what is the best age to have my baby photographed?”
A Newborn photo shoot is best done in the first two weeks of your baby’s life, ideally between 5 & 10 days.
This is when the wee one is most sleepy, still very flexible, and happy to be moulded into all of those cute curled up sleepy shots that everyone loves.
If you do not feel up to it during the first couple of weeks or you may just prefer your wee one to be more awake and to see their big eyes open we will do them a little later maybe 3-6 weeks.
“We have had some babies at this 3 – 6 week stage who have curled up and slept like little newborns and we can still use most of the newborn props as well”
Props or natural?…
There are lots of creative options for your photo shoot and you will have access to a wide range of props, set ups and fabrics that we have collected from all over the world to enhance your images.
We will also create some more natural portraits for you as well.
How long does it take?…
Our experience has shown that 2 hours is the perfect amount of time for a newborn shoot, any longer and babies get very fed up and restless (so do the parents)
This allows us plenty opportunity to shoot lots of different images and plenty time for feeding and changing if needed.
What about availability and how much does it cost?…
If you would like us to check for a date for your baby’s photo shoot and send you price details just CLICK HERE TO SEND US AN EMAIL or give us a call / send us a text on 07725 419980 and we will get back to you ASAP.

Hopefully we’ll see you in the studio soon,
Robert and Debbie.
